Does anyone have knowledge of an aftermarket set of (maybe progressive) fork spring to stiffen the OEM spring? I am not talking about changing the fork oil to harden the dampening.
Thanks

Might PM Gears.....

When they were getting ready for the salt flats he indicated his son was noticing the same POGO I was seeing in the front end. Though pogo is usually fixed with oil.

Never heard it they ended up changing the springs or not. Don't remember a vibration problem so maybe not.

He is good about answering PMs.

What is POGO? How does an oil change fix it?

Is is some type of vibration or oscillation which higher viscosity oil will fix?

Thanks

Pogo is a lower frequency bounce of the front wheel caused by a dampening problem.

Vibration is a higher frequency movement felt in bars generally

Yes we made a different damper and preload adjuster for the street. See attached flyer. We are working on the latest tests now and it will also be TUV approved ( i know you dont need this but here in Europe its important to have it )
